Revisit Over 200 Beautiful Moments In American Culture Like We Have Never Seen Before
Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson, 1978
Where soul met pop, Gaye, known for his soulful lyrics about love and tenderness, speaks to Jackson who had already made a name for himself in a more upbeat genre which provoked a more energetic audience than that of Gaye’s. Jackson had already left "The Jackson's" boy band at this point and began his sharp ascent to super stardom.
Michael Jackson went from being a part of the Jackson Five with his family to later moonwalking his way into a wildly successful solo career in 1971, which propelled him into pop icon status. He quickly became one of the biggest entertainers in the world and was eventually dubbed the "King of Pop."
Brigitte Bardot 1970s
The French model, actress, and singer was the original blonde bombshell. Brigitte Bardot’s style, grace, and eventually her passion for animal rights heavily influenced style and culture as a whole. Her hair, makeup, and style has been emulated across the world, and she even has a signature pose models try to reproduce to this very day.
